One more reason to stop supporting the police…
Derrick Vargo has reportedly long feared this inhumane treatment and imprisonment by the state—which could be why he has waited such a long time to announce his lawsuit…
Vargo was allegedly pushed off of a ledge by a Capitol law enforcement officer during the January 6th protests and he claims that this was done intentionally.
Video footage confirms that the drop was significant and could have potentially led to serious injury or death…
This is what Vargo is currently suing the Capitol Police department for—attempted murder:

“Before Tuesday, Derrick Vargo was the unnamed subject of a video in which a police officer appears to push him off a 20-foot-high ledge, plunging to what many assumed was a tragic death.”

According to The Epoch Times:
Nearly 14 months later, Vargo and his attorney announced a forthcoming civil suit against the U.S. Capitol Police for his serious injuries and mental trauma caused by the push and fall.
Vargo, 32, who works as a yacht builder in Tennessee, said he has no doubt the motorcycle officer who pushed him did it with the intention of hurting or killing him.
“He knows exactly where he was on that on that Capitol building. You know, he works there,” Vargo told The Epoch Times. “He’s not just a citizen. He works there. He knows how high up he is. He shoved me not with just one arm but two. That means he wanted me off of it. It was very intentional.”
Mr. Derrick Vargo is a hero and needs round the clock protection.

The Gateway Pundit had more:
Vargo was hesitant to speak out for over a year in fear of retaliation by the Biden Regime. Fully aware of the political persecution of Trump Supporters after January 6th, Vargo decided to face the chances of arrest and detainment at DC Gitmo in exchange for being a possible conduit of the truth about what really happened on January 6th.
